timber company, it has it all, especially ahead of the hurricane sandy rebuild. we took profits. that said, if this stock goes down two or three points, we'll be right back in there buying it hand over fist. i'm itching to buy it ahead. but no one ever got hurt taking a profit. here's the bottom line. don't tell me this earnings season is a bust when it's only just begun. i actually like what i've been hearing. i'm actually on the calls unlike everybody else i hear criticizing. they're not doing this level of homework. going forward next week, buy some stocks j & j, 3m and especially honeywell. the rest, including apple, sit back and listen and then we'll make the decisions, informed decisions up before the quarters. jeff in nebraska. jeff? >> caller: jim, boo-yah. >> boo-yah, jeff. >> caller: thanks for taking my call. >> same. >> caller: appreciate the heads up on celgene, $83, i turned a profit. >> thank you, thank you! you're the first person who has admitted that the guy didn't come on the show and chase -- he gave the exact same presentation he gave here except that was 20
have climate now, back on the agenda, the horrific outcome with hurricane sandy has put that back on the agenda. that's number three on his agenda behind i guess immigration and gun stuff. there is an opportunity i think to go back to the table to get business and labor and environmentalists together to figure out a way to put more people to work building clean energy in america, building wind turbines, putting up solar panels, going into biofuels. we can have more work, more jobs, more wealth and better health with a green economy than without one. >> tough thing do with the focus on cutting spending though. >> is there any room there for republicans, erick? >> probably not largely because most of the green jobs program are dependent on the government for existence. the government can't keep pouring money into a lot of these programs. the coal industrial doesn't necessarily depend on lobbyists coming to congress to get carveouts in government. >> let me give you a chance to talk about guns, another issue where the president wants to move in the second term. four months from now,
